BIO: John Price

 

John Price was born in Belfast.  He completed an Art Foundation course in Belfast,1970-1971 and studied at Camberwell School of Art, London,1971-1974.  His Postgraduate studies were completed at University of London and Ulster University, 1974-1976.

 

As winner of The George Campbell Memorial Award from the Arts Council of Northern Ireland and the Spanish Cultural Institute, Dublin, he travelled and painted in Spain in 1985.

 

His last solo exhibition Esplanade-Paintings and Drawings 2012-2014 was held at the Engine Room Gallery, Belfast in February 2015.

 

"In the late 1980's I made a series of paintings at Ballyholme beach in Bangor, County Down.  I remember struggling with the shifting light, the wind and fast-moving clouds, chasing momentary fluctuations, the fleeting, temporary things.

I never quite got Ballyholme out of my system, so I returned there in Spring, 2012 to try to come to terms with all this once again.  

 

The images in this exhibition, produced over the last three years are a reflection on my personal experience on the esplanade.
